What to do & Where to stay in & around Wighton

The Carpenters Arms is set in the centre of Wighton and makes for the perfect pit stop after or during a walk

Escape the chaos of the coast 

Everyone loves a walk along the stunning nearby beaches. But if you fancy a quieter, more tranquil walk with stunning country views why not walk from Wells-Next-The-Sea to Wighton. Starting up by Alderman Peel High School you can walk along the tracks past Gallow Hill & over the railway crossing into Wighton. The walk takes around an hour and is approximately 3.3 miles finishing up at The Carpenters Arms where you can enjoy a drink & some food in our fabulous beer garden. If you dont fancy walking back just a 3 minute walk from the pub is the bus stop where you can catch a bus back every hour


Fancy going a little further?

why not turn your walk into a round circuit. From Wighton walk through to Warham and along the Railway back to Wells. See link below for map. Along this walk is Warham Camp Iron Age Fort.

The Wells & Walsingham Light Railway

Take a ride on the worlds smallest public railway, a great way to see the beautiful contryside and did you know it will stop at Wighton? Check out train times at the link below ;
